Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.
Based on your symptoms, the most likely diagnosis would be ocular myasthenia gravis. In this condition, drooping of eyelid, often more on one side, along with double vision, are the most common symptoms. Symptoms are mostly present in the evenings and are better in the mornings.
As the disease progresses, other symptoms such as difficulty in chewing, swallowing and speaking may occur.
You should consult a neurologist for evaluation. An EMG and repetitive nerve stimulation study would help in confirming the diagnosis.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries.

Thank you for the information. I have an appointment coming up with my general practitioner and will ask for referral to neurologist. My question is, if it does turn out to be myasthenia, what type of quality of life can I expect? My husband and I are planing for more children... is this now out of the question? Thank you.
